5 stars Another review to one of the biggest albums ever recorded in the prog music. IŽd like to say or add something new to this review but its just impossible, i mean all the reviews here contains many differents ratings and many differents opinions to the album but i can tell you the majority of this calls to this one a masterpiece and im one of the majority of course.

Its an amazing opening the first track "Dancing With The Moonlit Knight", because you can hear the vocals of Mr. Gabriel a capella just superb. With this proof you have little clue about what this album means. So you need to sit and close your eyes because all the album is excellent.

Maybe there are 2 songs with a poppy taste, yes the weakest in the album could be " I Know What I like" and "More Fool Of Me" sang by Mr Collins, but all the album is well structured.

Without count this pair of songs we have the rest of the album like a truly masterpiece. And if you hear all the album in one listening you can discover that this one is like a book when it starts with "dancing" and when it finish with a little reprise a.k.a "aisle of plenty".

Maybe is not my favorite album of Genesis but surely my second. Check it out by yourself.

Highly Recommended!! Epic,Beautiful,Excellent,Sweet, Essential in a prog collection... A must- have !!
